Sean is pursuing Bachelor's degree at Colorado College. He was awarded a fellowship to gain field experence in a broad range of ecological applications and to develop and pursue a specific research project. He chose to examine the effects of invasive Green Sunfish on native Sonora Mud Turtles. This knowledge could be applied to stop or slow the spread of Green Sunfish that alter nutrient availability and population density of sites formerly solely inhabitated by native species.
